A wondrous island of pristine rainforests, tropical beaches and endemic wildlife

Madagascar is home to an astonishing 107 species of lemur

Madagascar is a land like no other. Located off the east coast of Africa, it’s the world’s fourth largest island and one of the most biodiverse countries on earth, home to thousands of plant and animal species. 

It’s often referred to as the ‘Eighth Continent of the World’. After breaking away from the Indian subcontinent millions of years ago, Madagascar has evolved into a rich and utterly unique ecosystem. Today around 80% of its thousands of species cannot be found anywhere else in the world. 

Madagascar is a natural paradise and an off-grid destination for even the most experienced safari enthusiasts. You’ll find protected national parks and reserves filled with incredible species including the famous lemurs (such as the Indri indri, the largest lemur species on earth), the elusive fossa (the island’s only predator), a kaleidoscope of singing birds, and colorful chameleons sinking into their surroundings. 

The rainforests are ringed by powdery white beaches, gorgeous coral reefs and the bright blue waters of the Indian Ocean, where you’ll find migratory humpback whales, dolphins, turtles, manta rays and dazzling schools of fish. 

With a fascinating background mix of African, Austronesian, European and Arab culture, the island also has a unique heritage to explore. You can visit local villages and markets to find handmade crafts, or walk with local guides to learn about the sacred forests and centuries-old burial sites of native tribes. 

This is a remarkable wildlife destination; the large island and islets of Madagascar offer the appeal of endemic species, extremely varied landscapes, and extraordinary cultural differences. With Wayfairer, you'll find yourself expertly guided through dense rainforest or canoeing down a river with no one else around. 

Great for nature lovers, families and kids, or a more intrepid romantic getaway, Madagascar is a beautiful tropical island with an adventurous interior. Start customizing your exclusive tour of this fascinating place by contacting our knowledgeable team of Madagascar travel experts.

“This is the second time Wayfairer has planned a trip, the first being a Safari and we will definitely have them plan another trip. Our journey to Antarctica exceeded our expectations".

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six. Their meticulous planning, endless enthusiasm and huge knowledge of the area meant that we had a truly unforgettable experience, we even had a fabulous birthday party in the middle of the Mara. The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries. Machu Pichu was breathtaking, but there was also so much more to see and do....let Wayfairer take you on amazing journey!"

"Our trip was a dream come true. The arrangements made by Wayfairer exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were as good or better than the descriptions in our trip documents.
